German term or phrase: den deutschen Zeiten
This term crops up in the following sentence from my document about calculating pensions: Die Rente ist allein aus den deutschen Zeiten nach den deutschen Rechtvorschriften zu berechnen.
I think Zeit in this text usually refers to a period but why does it have deutschen in front and how can I translate this sentence?

English translation:the time period in Germany
Explanation:
Not sure of this but it sounds logical because the pension system in Germany would not wish to pay for time lived or worked elsewhere.

Explanation:
Given the many people from outside the borders of Germany who qualify for repatriation your document specifies that old-age pension is calculated based only on work done in Germany.
